You know that back-to-school feeling you sometimes get this time of year, even if you (like me) haven’t technically been back-to-school for a while now? I don’t know what it is…maybe the school supplies in all the stores, maybe the sight of the first pumpkins in the farm stands, maybe the first night where you really do need a sweater….whatever it is, it feels like a fresh slate and a time for spiffing things up…so here come a few new spiffy things for Framed Cooks.
First of all, I’m going to be doing a post here and there called “Kitchen Tips.” If you look on my Recipe Index down on the bottom row, you’ll see a picture of those three wooden spoons, and that’s where my Kitchen Tips will live after they are posted. They will be little tricks and tips I’ve collected over the years, just in case they make life in your own kitchen a little easier. (And I’m taking suggestions, so feel free to email me with any of your own!) I won’t have a regular post date for these…I’ll just toss them out there whenever I get an idea I just HAVE to share.
Next, there’s now a link up at the top of the blog called “SHOP.” I have pictures hanging in various places around my house of cooling cookies, one perfect tomato, a tomatillo sitting on a rock wall…you get the idea. At any rate, from time to time folks ask me where they can get prints of my various wanderings with my Nikon, so that’s what the SHOP link is for. It will take you to a gallery where you can order 8×10 prints of some of my favorite shots. If you see a picture on my blog that isn’t in the gallery, or if you want a picture in a different size, just email me and I’ll figure it out for you.
And last but not least, because I am ridiculously obsessed with both Instagram and Twitter lately, I’ve added a box at the bottom of the blog that will contain my latest Instagrams and tweets…it will also have my Archives, which I realized the other day that most grown up blogs have. Go ahead, scroll down to the very bottom and take a look. Or you don’t have to. But if you want to keep up with my arbitrary Instagramming, tweeting stream of consciousness musings about dogs, books, supper and other stuff, there you go.
Okay! Now all I need is some sharpened pencils and I’m ready for school! Or whatever else comes my way. Happy back to school, everyone. :)
